We were able to book as we are at the sister Hotel. I didn't like our table as we looked directly at a very large screen showing football so they agreed to move us. We were still directly looking at the screen however further away...but by a very high wall and a loud music speaker. They took the food order first. Eventually the aperitif order was made and the bread arrived then the starter & then the aperitif at which point they took away the wine menu. We wanted wine. Twice the staff tried to remove the wine glasses. I ended up with a sparkling water, gin & tonic plus a glass of wine practically all at once!. The food to be fair was ok. My starter was a croquette but mainly of potato, a little tastless. Husbands ginger chicken was fine. Mains - chicken was good but husband's steak was rare not medium and already cut up! Whilst we were there 4 couples and a three were turned away because they were fully booked! Lots of free tables!!!. It seems to be a place for Madeiran families as load of children there. Didnt mind cathedral children all very sweet. Our service was fast but we felt rushed as they wanted to concentrate on the 4 large family tables. Ok for a snack but lacks class. Who wants a large screen at dinner. May as well have given us dinner on a tray so we could watch the TV. Probably won't go back!More

The good : the property and grounds are nice, the hotel is well decorated and it's near the hotel pool so that makes it convenient. The bad: the food. The food is not worthy of a 5 star hotel. In general the food is bland...and not well cooked. We've been there 3 times and each time the quality has deteriorated. I ordered a pork belly dish that was completely burnt, which is impressive given that pork belly has a lot of fat, so burning it takes a very bad chef. The Ugly: The service is horrible. The food takes too long to arrive and the waitstaff is a bit rude / indifferent towards the guests. The restaurant needs a complete overhaul by a competent chef and manager in order to be minimally competitive with the excellent restaurants within 5 to 10 min walk (Avista, Il Galo de Oro, Casal Penha, Quinta da Casa Branca, William, Villa Cipriani... There are almost too many to name)More

If you'd like to spend your time in attractive garden without food I can advise this place. But if you'd like to have a good quality food and service I don't recommend to visit Terreiro. For the first course I had suckling pig starter. It...were two pieces of special bread with some overdone pieces of "suckling pig" (or something other. I couldn't determine what it was). For second course I ordered Ribeye steak medium. I was brought a several peaces of meat. It looked as somebody ate this steak before me and chef cut and reheated it. Manager couldn't explain this situation and offered to cook new steak (medium). However, instead of new steak I received two pieces of well done cooked meat. I gave up to eat it. Second manager (or hostess) saw that I haven't eaten this meat and didn't offer any sollution. She only told me that she hope next my visit a steak would be better. But next visit I will spend in other restaurant.More

We are extremely disappointed with this restaurant and do not recommend it to anyone! Why? We could not book a table either by phone or at the location. The excuse of the one employee, who showed absolutely no interest, was that the person in charge...was currently absent.... Very sad and annoying, as the restaurant with terrace and garden looks beautiful! First time ever that we've experienced anything like this and believe me, we've travelled a lot and in our stay in Madeira we've eaten in at least 15 different restaurants!More

Restaurant manager walks around, speaks to guests with his mask under the nose, at all times. After we got seated, they forgot about us. We had to call them to get our order. After ordering the water, we got another by mistake. Our food got...to our table dried and hard (chicken curry). The sauce was like a watery sauce, no color no taste. Our other dish, the beer sauce meat, arrived with no sauce and very dried also. For the coffee, we asked for 2 whites, very white. It arrived extremely dark with a roasted taste. Awful. When we asked for the bill, it took ages. We had to leave while the manager was dealing with our invoice with the tax number. The whole experience lasted for enable 2 hours. Terrible. Awful. What an example to set to their employees, in all fields. By the way, they allowed customers to walk among the tables without a mask. We did not feel confortable or safe whatsoever. Prevention is the number 1 rule. From a place like Savoy, we expected a hell lot more.More

The restaurant space is beautiful, perfect for a summer dinner, sunny lunch or morning brunch. The food is good and they have a great sangria, but the service is terrible. Don’t get me wrong, people are not rude, they simply are very amateur! Take a...very long time to get to you on arrival (during my dinner I saw a couple leaving beach use they were unattended ), your orders take for forever and get to the table on wrong order and sometimes overlapping courses and table service is terrible. For a restaurant that aims to have such a high standard they fall very far from that standard...More

Rarely have I seen such an appalling service. Not twice were we served by the same waiter. Mains came before starters... For which we waited for, for over an hour. We complained to the manager, who offered to make it up with dessert. But when...the moment is ruined, it is just so. Unprofessional and UNBOTHERED. For such a lovely location it is shameful. One might expect much more after a year of pandemic from a restaurant which clearly expects to cater to wealthy tourists.More
